my ford ranger is invisible

well, its at least invisible to the 4 bike cops that i flew by doing 55 in a 35. they were using radar too.

and i was probably going faster then that because of my tires.

but guaranteed, if i had my trans am already, i'd be here *****ing about a ticket lol

anybody else have this sort of thing happen to them?

i mean stuff like this has happened on more then one occasion to me in this truck lol

I was doing 65 in a 45 in Michigan and the cop was sitting under a bridge litterally 30 feet from me when I saw him.. I brake checked it while pulling my camper. My brakes squeeked. Didnt get a ticket though.

That sucks...only speeding ticket I ever got was 65mph in a 15mph zone. Walked away with a simple $30 ticket for exceeding basic speed and "Have a good day Sir."

Quite the opposite but then again it's bright red with Troy Lee flames down the side. lol

I get BS tickets like rolling stop onto a one way street with no one around and a perfect view and 10mph over in the middle of BFE because I missed a sign for an intersection (65 to 55 back to 55 in a matter of 1mi and no change in the construction of the road).

Had a cop the other day pull me over for 'not seeing my plate due to sunrise glare'....and while he had me over, he went ahead and measured the ground to the bottom of my fender. Mudflaps. Legal limit is 27". I'm 27". Take that Coastal Hwy Patrol! lol.


Ty...my trucks the same way...espicially at night.

File a citizen's complaint.

I had a cop pull me over when I did nothing wrong. He said my tag was expired. I called him out on his BS. I merely had two tags registered to the vehicle and hadnt swapped the newest one on yet. Turns out he was having a hissy fit because I'd given him the one finger salute before for running speed traps outside of his jurisdiction after three robberies happened a few days before inside his jurisdiction.

They really need to overhaul training and attitude at police academies.

I didn't care and don't care to file anything. I knew I wasn't doing anything wrong and my truck is completely legal(minus the lack of a front plate which he didn't even look at). Why make a big deal out of nothing?

I think the reason they didn't pull you over is because they were suprised it could go that fast, at least I think that cause I've done that several times and they don't even attempt to get me, but they hate when you take off real fast(without squeeling tires) and level out at the speed limit, trust me they will tail you 'til you get home. I need to quit pushing my luck. lol
